Peter F. Drucker has been Clarke Professor of Social Science and Management at Claremont Graduate School in California since 1971.From Publishers Weekly:
Challenging conventional wisdom, management-guru Drucker argues that America's sagging economic status has not resulted from a failure of its manufacturing base, but instead from the worldwide collapse in the 1980s of commodity exports and prices. The success of "Japan Inc.," in his assessment, illustrates the importance of a close government-business relationship, not the need for central planning. Author of some 20 books, Drucker has provocative things to say here on excessive military spending ("perhaps the major cause" of our loss of competitiveness) and environmental problems that, in his view, demand a "transnational" approach. His vision of a "post-business" society, however, where "knowledge workers" flourish and voluntary "third-sector" organizations forge bonds of community, seems unrealistic. Among the topics he broaches are the "Russian Empire," school reform, "information-based organizations" and management as a liberal art.
